Carlo Ancelotti: Happy in Madrid, reflects on Milan and opens a memorable B&B

Carlo Ancelotti is living his best life. Back in his hometown of Parma, he recently opened a new Bed and Breakfast in his old house. The place will be run by his children and filled with mementos from his illustrious career.

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Ancelotti reminisced about some of his most cherished memories: “I have incredible memories in this house. I’m thrilled my children will take care of it, keeping it a special place for years to come.”

He even revealed a heartwarming tradition: “Here in Parma, I slept with the Champions League trophy next to me in both 2003 and 2007, thanks to a loan from Adriano Galliani.” These were two of his Champions League victories with AC Milan, adding to the two he later won with Real Madrid.

Loyalty and Looking Forward:

Despite recent speculation linking him to the Brazil national team job, Ancelotti recently extended his contract with Real Madrid until 2026. “Football is and always will be my passion,” he said. “I watch all the games, and I’m truly happy in Madrid.”

When asked how things might change with Kylian Mbappé’s rumored arrival at Real Madrid, Ancelotti remained focused on the bigger picture: “Real Madrid is the most important thing. It’s a fantastic club, and I’m incredibly proud to be here. Both Milan and Real Madrid are historic giants with the most Champions League titles. I’ve been fortunate to coach both.”

He emphasized the importance of adaptability: “Football demands that you can adjust. You might work with exceptional players or those with less experience. Open communication is key in any relationship.”

A Twist of Fate and Finding Peace:

Monza CEO Adriano Galliani, Ancelotti’s former colleague at AC Milan, revealed an interesting twist of fate. “If Pippo Inzaghi had scored a penalty against Torino in November 2001,” Galliani said, “Milan wouldn’t have fired Fatih Terim, and you (Ancelotti) might have ended up managing Parma instead.”

Ancelotti, ever the optimist, responded: “That’s how destiny works. If I had signed with Parma that Friday, everything could be different. But there’s no point in dwelling on the past. We focus on what lies ahead.”

On a final note, when asked what happiness means to him, Ancelotti offered a simple yet profound answer: “Happiness is peace.”
